Great House Cleaning Tips - The kitchen is probably one of the most overwhelming rooms to keep clean for most people. I've got a system that keeps my kitchen clean all of the time. Want to know it? Buy my book. Just Kidding! Here's the checklist -
Dishes must be cleaned every night.
Before you drain the water in the sink - wipe down the counters and the stove - including a quick wipe down on the range-hood.
When you do drain the sink, take 30 seconds and wipe it down.
Once a week - do each of these -
Take some Murphy's wood soap and do a quick wipe down on the cabinet fronts.
Wipe the refrigerator - quick wipe, inside and out.
Clean the microwave.
Clean behind everything on the counters.
Wash the floor.
For example, you clean the microwave on Monday, clean the cabinets on Tuesday, refrigerator on Wednesday, the floors on Thursday, and a good wipe down of the counters on Friday.
Each one of these tasks should only take 5 minutes - except for floor washing - but even that goes faster when you do it regularly.
If you have build up in any of these areas - don't kill yourself trying to clean it all at once. Keep at it on this schedule and it will get better in time. It's what I call the 'wear away principle'.
When you do these little things on a regular basis, you'll be amazed at how easy it is to keep the kitchen clean!
